why in a minute he's not just another whackadoo. live to dallas, texas, where ted cruz is about to speak in just a moment. see the big defund obama care banner which lets you know what the event is going to be like. also tonight the terrifying prospect that one result of the bankruptcy of the city of detroit could be the thousands of potential personal bankruptcies caused by the slashing of retirees' pensions. a full discussion on that is coming up. all that plus i am absolutely geeking out a little bit over what i think is the coolest car ever. the tesla. i will tell you why it's so cool but also why it's so important. >>> but tonight we begin with a man who i believe is the most dangerous politician on the american right. in october 2007 i sat in the media gallery of the united states supreme court and watched the solicitor general of texas argue on behalf of the state that he should have the ability to put to death a mexican national, jose, who had been convicted of raping and murdering two teenage girls in houston. he won that argument and he was executed by texas on august

"to our knowledge, he never had canadian citizenship." now, when a senator's staff speak for the senator says "to our knowledge," everything that follows that is a statement that everyone in that senate office knows might have to be quickly revised, and so it has been. the "washington post" is now reporting that ted cruz will renounce his canadian citizenship. cruz said, "now the dallas morning news says that i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that is true, then sure, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada, but i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should be only an american because i was a u.s. citizen at birth, because i left calgary when i was 4, and have lived my entire life since then in the u.s., an

in texas, senator cruz, in a heated town hall. could an awkward moment be coming for two conservative stars in the lone star state? here in gotham, anthony weiner's wild spiral to single digits may have opened the door for an unexpected contender and maybe the next mayor. bill de blasio. feeling like he's got a lot of mojo with just 20 days till primary day. good morning from new york city. it's wednesday, august 21st. it's "the daily rundown." my first reads of it the mornin. we're going to start with some domestic politics. the state of both political parties is anything but strong these days. the only reason there isn't much hand ringing about the democratic party is because the republican party is the one in such disa ray. the open warfare has become a more public spectacle than we've seen in years. many republican leaders are exhausted from dealing with the tea party and some seem to be downright giddy over what's happened in the last week. they don't put their name on their giddiness. not even 250 days old and already he's become probably among the most recognizable faces of the tea p

to confirm a couple of these people and boom, that's it. >> let's hear the pitch. ted cruz down in texas the other night. >> if president obama decides that he's going to force a partial temporary government shutdown, and it's worth noting the last time that happened, we saw number one the parade of horrible people like to talk about on tv that didn't happen. what happened was a temporary suspension of nonessential federal government spending. >> well, that's, of course, what happens if he does blink. of course, what this is ridiculous. let's play around with this nuclear button for awhile and see what happens. if you don't do it, it doesn't do it. but if both sides take that point of view, what happens? >> then we do have a shutdown. >> and default and it keeps going. >> i think obama is going to stand this time. he knows he caved in 2011. i think he's going to stand a little tougher. most people will blame the republicans. most people know the republicans are saying no to everything and causing more trouble. >> jim you said something. he's not the oldest guy in the world. i'm older tha

, president george w. bush had made 50 visits to his texas ranch totalling all or part of 323 days. knoller said that he always puts the word "vacation" in quotes because as he said u.s. presidents don't really get to take a vacation. the job comes with them 24/7. well, i'm hoping president obama plays lots of golf in the next couple of days or shoots hoops or whatever else he needs to do to maintain his mental edge. i felt the same way about president george w. bush, and i never begrudged him his time at the ranch. all told he was there during 490 days during his presidency. the health of the country is largely a function of the physical and mental health of its commander in chief. and if blowing off a steam with a couple of bogeys or a beer in the clubhouse keeps him sharper when the red phone rings, we're all better off for it. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being was.
